Wyoming is a mostly rural state with roughly 278,000 employees working in it. This is the least populous state in the U.S., and it is the second lease densely populated. While this may sound like a negative in terms of job prospects, the demand for workers in Wyoming is actually quite high. The mean hourly wage here is $20.76 an hour, which equates to $43,180 a year. If you are looking for a small town life with big pay opportunities, Wyoming is the place to be.
Due to its sparse population, Wyoming does not have a university available with a laptop program. That does not mean that you cannot study in this state though. Wyoming residents are still eligible for laptops through online universities in the country.
